Strand Theatre

The Strand Theatre is on Main Street in the small town of Kendallville, Indiana. It was built in 1890 as the Spencer Opera House, and was renamed several times before becoming the Strand in 1950. It is the only theater in Noble County.

A lot of Indiana's small towns still have locally-owned theaters like the Strand. Small movie houses like it were once common in the state's large cities, but they were driven out of business by giant multiplexes decades ago.

The company that owns the Strand also owns the Silver Screen Theatre in Garrett and the Auburn-Garrett Drive-In. The Silver Screen closed in 2014, but the Auburn-Garrett Drive-In was still open when I made this photograph in March, 2016.

by Christopher Crawford

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
